Motherboard NO Boot

PC been working fine, turned on recently and NO GO (just lights and fans come on). I took PC apart, discovered Harddrive has gone (appears to be internal motor). Replaced Harddrive. Computer still does boot up. When I hook the hard drive up Ribbon and Power, the harddrive no go, but when I remove ribbon, the harddrive - I can feel it turn / run. I tried replacing parts (power supply, ribbons, etc.), but still no boot (bios, etc.)

    Even with a harddrive in the PC, the computer should give some beeps when started, and also allow for me to go into the BIOS set up ??

Have you made sure that the new hard drive is set to the same settings that the old one was ie master or slave and that the ribbon is attached the same way

This is one of 3 possible problems. Either your motherboard has gone bad, your power supply has gone bad, or the connections from the power supply to the motherboard are not secure.

Hello, a friend recently brought me a Presario c700 asking me to fix it. When I inspected it, it has occured to me that the entire thing looks completely fine, inside and out, I've checked this thing with...


What I recommend is you remove everything you could possibly remove from the laptop (HDD, mems, cd rom, wifi cards, etc) just to check if it will turn off even when it's not booting or posting. Try turning it on with just the charger and WITHOUT the battery and see if it stays on. If it doesn't, then most likely the mobo itself is the problem.

Lights on, no display, doesn't boot


had similar problem on sony vaio. when power depressed, i could hear the cd drive turn a bit, the hard drive light blink once, and that's it. power light would remain on, but nothing else. I took it apart and resoldered all the main chasis grounds on the motherboard and shorted/resetted the board battery(memory/clock) and put everything back together and started up fine. got lucky i guess.

The motherboard controls the fan speed - and laptops often turn it off entirely when it is not needed. This sounds like a motherboard issue where an internal trace is broken and sometimes it makes contact, other times not. There's probably nothing you can do except replace the motherboard.

Multi card reader fault after re-boot?


I have a akasa internal 3.5 card reader, 4 slots and a usb port, no fans. Installed ok and worked one time then dissappeared in my computer and device manager.

Looking at the plug it had a wire in where a dummy connector on the motherboard connects. Took the cover off the card reader and looked at the other end and on that connectot no wire. Reversed the lead and all up and running. No Quality assurance any more!

My laptop says a disk red error occurred and will not boot up it goes in circles asking for restarts and says the same thing also iam getting this message as well PXE-E61 MEDIA TEST FAILURE CHECK...


"PXE-E61 MEDIA TEST FAILURE CHECK CABLE"
This means that the motherboard and harddrive are not communicating correctly, there is no data cable to connect the harddrive to the motherboard on a laptop the harddrive connecting plug is soldered directly to the the motherboard.
Either your harddrive is dying, or your motherboard has gone faulty. Laptop repairs are quite involved, if you are not familiar with taking laptops apart I would suggest you get profesional help with this problem.
If you want to have a go yourself I can point you in the direction of websites I use when doing laptop repairs.
